Ask Your Own Health Question

Did your doctor do any blood test which showed positive for Methamphetamines?

He said he did because I was having a weird chest pain that started the night I got home from hospital. I try bought it was a bone in my sternum because I have psoriatic arthritous in my sternum and ribs.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Can't really afford that but question bothered me because I take Percocet regularly.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Is that even possible that a drug as that would show up when I did not take anything else.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It's hard for me to believe that it would but my blood pressure was 191/109 I was having a panic attack when I woke up cuz of the pain and shortness of breath from form from a cold.

The test can be false positive, especially when you had taken Claritin D and Benadryl.

You can challenge the test and get a GC-MS test which is like fingerprint for drugs. It will exactly identify the drug.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

ok I had taken the benadryl for four days twice daily up until yesterday. Would that still been in my blood?

Benadryl stays in the body from 63 to 90 hours of last dose.

Ok I can't remember if I told him about the benadryl but hospital was giving me it to me around the clock for three days and I took what I had here at hom e the next two days. I m not to worried about it now. I will challenge of anything comes from it. Thank you so much.

You are very welcome.

Please do not worry. This would be sorted out as false positive drug tests are common when multiple medications are taken.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
